Secretariat At Play [01:34]
This is a short clip of the 12 year old Secretariat running for enjoyment at Claiborne Farm. In 1973 Secretariat became the first US Triple Crown champion in 25 years, setting race records in all three events in the Series—the Kentucky Derby (1:59.4), the Preakness Stakes (1:53) and the Belmont Stakes (2:24) - records that still stand today. He is considered to be one of the greatest thoroughbreds of all time. Secretariat was conceived in Kentucky and born in Doswell Virginia on March 29th, 1970. Secretariat died on October 4th, 1989 at Paris, Kentucky. The race horse was euthanized at age 19 due to laminitis, a hoof condition. Secretariat was given the honor of being buried whole in the Claiborne cemetery. It is traditional for horses to be buried "head, heart, and hooves", but certain special horses deserve special treatment.
